John Wick, Ouija and St. Vincent open this weekend.


Recapping Last Weekend

Fury won last weekend with $23.7 million. Gone Girl nudged out The Book of Life for the second spot by $500,000. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day came in fourth with $11.5 million in its second weekend and The Best of Me rounded out the top five with $10 million.

Despite adding 15 theaters, Dracula Untold fell 57.5 percent to just under $10 million. Luckily, the film is doing extremely well overseas. Almost 70 percent of its earnings are coming from outside the United States and it sits at $140 million in receipts in less than two weeks of release.

Annabelle has passed the $75 million mark domestically, but is also doing better overseas, albeit slightly. It is sitting right around $170 million in less than three weeks of release. The spin-off of/prequel to The Conjuring was made for $6.5 million


Opening This Weekend


John Wick


Films starring Keanue Reeves haven’t gotten great reviews lately. John Wick is different. Rotten Tomatoes even has it at 93 percent among critics and 97 percent among audiences wanting to see it.

Predcition: $10 million tops 



Variety and several others are picking Ouija to top the box office this weekend. With a budget of $5 million, this one will be a surefire financial success.


Prediction: $18-$20 million

St. Vincent

It will be really interesting to see how this movie does this weekend at the box office. The film stars Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy. Murray isn’t as big of a draw as he once was, but he still has the name recognition. McCarthy’s Tammy wasn’t a $100 million hit, but still managed to make $80 million+ on a $20 million budget. Micheal Phillips of the Chicago Tribune calls this one “good enough”. St. Vincent wasn’t supposed to get a wide release initially but last weekend earned over $665,000 in just 68 theaters across the country. That figure, coupled with $110,000 on just four screens in its first weekend, push the Weinstein Company to expand its release.

See St.Vincent tonight  at MX Movies in downtown St. Louis.

Prediction: ?

Ryan is a weird dude. He doesn't cook, yet owns a plethora of kitchen gadgets. He rationalized buying a SodaStream while unemployed. He counts Step Up 2: The Streets as one of his favorite movies along with Footloose, Rent, Grease and Paul Blart: Mall Cop. He loves Mizzou but only wants them in the SEC so he can tailgate in Nashville. He owns a ShakeWeight and AbLounger, but still loves him some John Donut and Billie's Fine Foods. You can get more of Ryan at iLoveSoulard.com or just check the stool on the far end of the bar at iTap in Soulard.
